Hi my name is Paola. I recently rediscovered a box full of G1 ponies from my childhood and through fb found a new friend that led me here: ) I'm wanting to start collecting MLP G1 and I also collect Hot Wheels Lol. I'll be looking around for ones to buy or Maybe trade. Please bare with me as I learn names of each horse and average price points lol. I'm kinda lost right now.

Thanks for the welcome ;) I'm working on cleaning up my collection to the best of my knowledge now lol and I will take pics to post up. I mostly have the easy to find ones I've been told. I'm still learning the names. Its kinda neat to start collecting something new. I started hot wheels in 2010 and have a pretty nice collection. My ponies are the original ones I had as a kid and now I want to add to them. I've been trolling eBay more than I usually do for cars Lol. Lots of New things to look at. A breath of fresh air!! Hopefully a lot less drama than there is with toy cars. Its gotten quite overwhelming the past couple weeks with that.

Having your childhood toys is just a fun blast from the past! It's like being surrounded by old friends.

Yes it is. I remember playing with them like it was yesterday. I even slept with my favorites lol! I originally thought about selling them and immediately decided it wasn't something I could do. I can't part with them. Too many memories.

Well darn. I can't figure out how I'm gonna be able to share pics. I can't use a third party downloader my phone won't allow it. Ugh.

Oh we have other people here who love those! They're really popular as well. They're so pretty. I have to stay away from them, I can't afford to collect anything else! :D

Lol that's how I feel about Hot Wheels. I'm to the point I have everything just about that I want in my collection without spending $50-$100 a pop for them Lol.

Isn't it crazy the stuff we paid less than a dollar for a few decades ago are suddenly the most wanted things in the world? If only we'd had to foresight to buy these toys up back then!

When I was 6, I got a hand me down box of toys. It had hot wheels in it. I was excited because the boys next door played hot wheels between our houses and I wanted to play with them. So, that day I stuck my head above the fence and asked them if I could play. They asked me if I had Hot Wheels to which I proudly shouted yes. They told me to come on over. I had a blast with them and my new hot wheels. So, we collect hot wheels, fire engines, Breyer, cpks, strawberry shorcake, mlp, transformers, star wars, lalaloopsy, ugly dolls, you name it...its here.
